The Acting Company (Ian Belknap, Artistic Director / Margot Harley, Founder) presents Rainn’s First (and maybe only) Holiday Special, a virtual holiday benefit hosted by Rainn Wilson and directed by Tony-winning director John Rando.  This free performance streams December 17th at 8pm EST, reservations are encouraged.  If you sign up below you'll be registered for a raffle to win a poster for the event signed by Rainn.

This holiday show ranges from the traditional to the wacky. It will warm the heart, remind us of all that we have to be thankful for and provide some much-needed laughs. This is a once in a lifetime event, as while this may be Rainn’s first holiday show, it also could be his last.
The night will feature alumni and friends of The Acting Company, including Lisa Banes (Gone Girl, The Niceties), Joshua Bergasse (NBC's Smash, Emmy award winning Choreographer), Harriet Harris (Tony Award, Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Phantom Thread), Kevin Kline (Oscar and three time Tony Award Winner), Jesse L. Martin (Law and Order, RENT), Sarah Mearns (Princpal Dancer for the NYC Ballet, Swan Queen in Swan Lake), Steven Skybell (Lortel Award, The Fiddler on the Roof), Matthew Bradford Sullivan (Old Acquaintances), Lorraine Toussaint (Orange is the New Black, The Glorias), Tatiana Wechsler (X: or, Betty Shabazz v. The Nation), and many more!.

Join us on December 17 to join this once-in-a-lifetime event, because who is going to let Rainn Wilson ever do this again?
